It’s all personalI'm Kim and I have a few blogs (and perhaps an issue with over sharing, and too much time on my hands). My other two projects are www.fiftyfiftyvision.com and www.thisisplanbe.com. I also tweet at https://twitter.com/TheKimTackett and instagram at http://instagram.com/kimtackett. But here, it's all personal. I show up once a week, sometimes less, never more. I don't have a niche or a purpose or a plan. Just a few stories and pictures. Welcome to my personal space.

Woohee, it was a full weekend. It was a weekend in three part harmony…recrafting with the sisterhood, meeting baby Avery, and Alex’s birthday. I envisioned sharing it with you bit by bit. But it’s Monday morning (way too soon, by … Continue reading
Miss Alex is going to be 17 on Sunday. How did that happen? She flew into the world, stronger and fiestier than a 4 1/2 pound baby had the right to be. Here she is with Kate’s doll, Peg (named … Continue reading
The universe as wobbled. Astrological signs have shifted. It was dinner time banter last night. Alex said, “But I love being an Aquarius.” And Steve is clearly a Libra. Well, maybe not so clearly (a little Libra humor there). But … Continue reading
We have been living in fog for three days. No sun, just gray, with moments of white. But really, mostly gray. Once, a long, long time ago, we went for 21 days without seeing the sun. I have no need … Continue reading
